A Lesson About Cultivating Self-Love

37063501185_6d953aa0c3_o-1
I recently came across a podcast episode that talked about self-love and why it is so important to cultivate in our lives. It was the inspiration for this piece and my hope is that by reading it, you will identify ways to create more self-love in your own life.​ On his podcast, the Model Health Show, I recently heard Shawn Stevenson talk about how it's actually easier to love someone else than it is to love yourself. We fully immerse ourselves in being there for another person and neglect the most important relationship of all, the one we have with ourselves.​ Imagine the impact we can have on other people if we practice self-care. When we know how to take care of ourselves we can help others to do the same. We are each responsible for our own happiness.​ About a year ago, shortly after going through a breakup, I was distracting myself from the healing process by dating before I was ready. This resulted in me damaging a relationship with a great person because I was behaving like someone who wasn't truly settled. My emotions were so unstable. One minute I would be in to her and wanting to spend time together, and then the next I just wanted to be left alone. The time alone is what I probably actually needed, and it wasn't fair to her to pretend otherwise (though I actually thought I was ready). It wasn't until I was able to embrace being alone without feeling lonely that I was able to date again. Unfortunately, I had to learn this lesson the hard way.
